Primary 5 – Learning Blog 27.8.21

We have had a great first full week of learning in Primary 5.

This week, we have enjoyed listening to and discussing the book, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, as part of our whole school focus on the author Roald Dahl. We have been focussing on the use of adjectives in our writing and have created our own character descriptions with detailed drawings. In Maths & Numeracy, we have been working hard to learn all of our times table facts using active games, challenge quizzes, smartboard games and Sumdog. As part of Health & Wellbeing, we have been discussing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and what rights are the most important to us. We will be continuing this next week to create our Class Charters. In PE, we have been learning problem solving and working as a team. We did particularly well with the game, ‘Floor is Lava’. Well done, Primary 5!

The Artists of P5a

The artists of P5a have been enjoying themselves creating pictures of endangered animals for our topic display. We also thought we’d share a photo of our blossom tree which we created together before the Easter holiday when we were beginning to spot signs of spring. Now that the spring weather is here it feels like the right time to share it with you all.

Have a wonderful weekend!
